Surprise, surprise !! Does anyone have the lyrics and/or tune for the above song ? Not the one in the Archives about him "going to die on the Bridge of Toome today", but the one which mentions the persons who betrayed him and his regret at not having remained among his Presbyterian friends who would have shielded him from the Crown Forces. Roddy

Hey, Anonymous! When I follow your instructions I get the version Roddy did NOT want. Am I missing something?

Are You speaking Of MacPherson's Farewell? Try that one. I can hear this in my mind, and I know the Clancy's did it. Try dropping the l, and type it in ok? Damn, I'll think of it.

The problem is that the DT's copy of the required version spells the name as Rody! Search on that or "tender hearted christians"!

And when you get "You tender hearted Christians, pay no attention to the claim that Rody MacCorley was executed on Good Friday 1799. The actual date was Friday 28th February 1800. (Authority - report in Belfast Newsletter, Tuesday 4th March 1800)

I will not apologize for alternate spellings; "Rody" came from O'Lochlainn, and who am I to argue?

Suggetion, though---if you don't find what you're looking for, try searching for another word or phrase. McCorley would have located this. So would Presbyterian*

Great ! Just what i was looking for. But the tune seems a little different from the one I heard years ago. Roddy

Well, Rody... er, Roddy, the tune may be a little different but that's folk music! By the way, what Dick didn't tell you is that O Lochlainn's More Irish Street Ballads has both the text you wanted and the one you didn't. The former is spelled "Rody McCorley" and the latter "Rody MacCorley."

All the best,
Dan
